10 High-Yielding Small Caps For A Portfolio Return Boost

|Includes: Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. (CALM), GES, NTRI, PETS, PLOW, RCII, SAFT, SDLPF, TRMK, UVV

I'm a big fan of large capitalized stocks because most of them offer a huge diversification. But the great lack of bigger companies is that they do not grow at a fast pace. I'm not talking about Apple, those are exceptions.

The reason is simple: A company with a market cap of $500 million will simply have more room to grow than a company with a market cap of $50 billion. If it makes it to $1 billion, and you've invested, you double your money; if the large cap company adds $500 million to its market cap, you've only made 1%.

Today I would like to introduce 10 stocks with a yield higher than 3 percent and P/E valuations in an acceptable area while the market capitalization doesn't reach the 2 billion levels.

These are my results:

Seadrill Partners -- Yield: 17.73%

Seadrill Partners (NYSE:SDLP) employs people, generates revenue of $1,064.30 million and has a net income of $415.40 million. The current market capitalization stands at $1.18 billion.

Financials: The total debt represents 50.60% of Seadrill Partners assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 689.16%. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 35.07% was realized by Seadrill Partners.

Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $2.26. Last fiscal year, Seadrill Partners paid $1.68 in the form of dividends to shareholders.
